    This is the first time I'm installing my existing printer under Vista. It's a Brother Laser Printer (USB) connected via a Belkin Print Server (Ethernet). I have installed the Belkin Printer Port driver and then the Brother Printer driver. However, when it comes to configuring the printer port, as I click on the option to 'locate server' a box flashes on screen then disappears. I can't seem to get this box to stay on-screen so that I can configure the port.

    Any suggestions as to why this is happening?

    Ah, nvm... Think I've found a solution to this... Just add a TCP/IP port for the printer....

    admin/mod, you may delete this thread.
